    Yes. Probably.

    Maybe not.

    Probably. I doubt we even talked to him.

    Lol. My predictive text has 'Vaughan' ready to go.

    Just saw Seibold on nrl360. Seems cluey. Talks well. Man management remains to be seen. Get the sense he might be a bit intense.

    Yeah right. Other then Brisbane, how exactly did that work for us against the top teams this year?

    Like I said, we will all wait and see what consistent quality he will or won't bring to our team.

    We also matched Melbourne and the Cowboys. We have a good team. Paulo would add something but we don't need him.

    Why don't you answer the question yourself? Do some research and you might surprise yourself.

    Nevermind, I'll give you a hint: Melbourne had the best record against the top 8 teams this year, who was 2nd? Starts with Parra, ends with matta

    IF you must grumble, can you AT LEAST base it on some kind of fact please? Otherwise you'll come across as a nitwit. We wouldn't want that to start happening now, would we?

    Decent signing for Wenty. He's always been above reserve grade level.

    Just not always up to first grade level, although he definitely had his moments.

    I thought he was going overseas tbh

    He's a great match payments signing, as he played no NRL in 2017.

    Well that's a tough question though. As with a few positions there are probably a lot more than 16 players who are good enough to fill that bottom half.

    Apparently he needed a league contract to play in the World Cup (probably as he was playing union).

    So I doubt he is going to see out the contract.

    I don't mind Robbo, did ok with us. Wouldn't be that disappointed if he signed for next year as a back up.

    Obviously not the greatest at rucking it out, but has plenty of speed and can find the try line.
